Wolfburn 46%

Tasted: Apr 2016

A little high toned but lightly estery with hints of peach, apricot, pear and pineapple. Slightly grassy and minerally with crisp barley, white fruit, subtle vanilla oak and spice appearing.

The palate opens with the soft barley and hints of straw, slightly bubblegummy white fruit, apricot and pineapple. A gently whiff of smoke on the middle with a lively crisp mineral character. Medium length, quite citric with lingering barley and dry spice. For such a young spirit it has plenty of Highland character and should mature well.

Refill Quarter Cask, First Fill Bourbon and First Fill Oloroso

Tasted: Oct 2017

The nose is pleasantly woody and heathery with Alsace-esque apricot, apple and white fruit. The sherry is pretty subtle and sits beneath, whilst the quarter casks add a little grippy tannin.

The palate is full and fruity with apple, apricot, pineapple and pear. Gentle sherry spice comes through on the middle along with some light tannins. Good, juicy, barley’d finish with a little raw cereal (just to remind you of its age) and salt.
